Britney Didn’t Want Jason Trawick Having a Life and That’s Why They Broke Up

From People:

“There was no third party involved,” says the source of the couple, who began dating in 2009. “Things haven’t been ideal in their relationship for some time. There was a lot to work on before they could move forward and get married.”

One of those things may have been Trawick’s desire to maintain a life outside their relationship.

“Britney had a lot of issues with Jason doing his own thing – in business and seeing his friends,” another source says. “In her perfect world he would have been home with her twenty-four/seven, so that was a point of contention; something they were always working on.”

Though Spears recently purchased an $8.5 million mansion in L.A.’s Thousand Oaks neighborhood to live in with Trawick and her sons Sean, 7, and Jayden, 6, another source says everything wasn’t picture perfect. “They’ve been spending a lot of time apart in the last few months,” says the source.

While the pair’s relationship had become “frustrating,” according to the close source, they’ve put up a united front. Spears told PEOPLE exclusively in a statement Friday that she and Trawick are committed to remaining “great friends.”

After hearing news of the split, a source who saw the couple and her children in recent weeks says, “They both seemed happy. Especially Britney, I could tell that she was in a really great place. She smiled a lot. They were both really at ease with the boys.”

OK, so, understandable. I remember when I was eighteen years old, I lived with a guy that I had a “serious relationship” with (pfft), and one point of contention between the two of us was that hey. It was totally cool for me to hang out with my friends, but he wasn’t allowed to. He was supposed to stay in the house and do nothing and that’s about it. On the flip side, it was totally cool for him to hang out with this friends, but I wasn’t allowed to hang out with mine. I was supposed to stay in the house and do nothing and that’s about it. It’s, you know, something that immature couples often go through, and while it doesn’t make it right (because seriously—LOL), it makes it pretty commonplace. I’m just sorry that Britney—who’s thirty-one—and Jason—who’s almost forty-one—have to be acting like teenagers who know shit about the world and healthy relationships and independence.

Goodness gracious. You know, it took me just a few months of arguments about stupid crap that revolved around ego and possessiveness to realize that I had some growing up to do, and I did it right quick. As for Britney and Jason? Well. If all this is the case, somebody needs to chill the f-ck out and enjoy life for what it is. There are things of importance beyond basing your entire existence on your significant other out there, you know.

Britney and Jason: DONE

Not only is Britney Spears breaking off her relationship with ‘X-Factor’, she’s also breaking it off with her long-term boyfriend and fiance, Jason Trawick. Britney’s rep had this to say about the couple’s split:

“Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have mutually agreed to end their one-year engagement. As two mature adults, they came to the difficult decision to go their separate ways while continuing to remain friends.”

And then Britney herself had this to say:

“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”

And then Jason himself had this to say:

“As this chapter ends for us a new one begins. I love and cherish her and her boys and we will be close forever.”

Lots of statements, guys. So many statements.

But really, all in all, a pretty bland-sounding statement about breaking up, not to mention, pretty vague reasons to begin with. Other sources, however, claim that the real reason behind Britney and Jason’s split was because Britney wanted more children, while Jason did not. The sources says that the couple often argued over having more children, and the reoccurring disagreement ultimately undid the relationship. I guess it’s a good reason as any, but it really only lends more credence to the idea that Britney and Jason were strictly a business arrangement, where Jason was hired solely for the purpose of being Britney’s companion. It’s still a possibility, you know?

Could it be that Britney’s finally getting her life back? I really don’t see what she could have seen in this guy anyway. Come to think of it, I don’t see what she saw in any of the guys that she dated or married, save for Justin Timberlake, because that one’s just a given. Maybe Britney’s got real shitty taste in men, and maybe Britney’s just chosen the last few dudes while under the influence of either meth or personality-altering drugs. Maybe Britney’s about to come full circle here, and really reclaim her life. Wonder who she’s going to date next!

I Guess Britney Spears Is Going to Be Single Soon

Ugh, poor Britney. It’s always something, isn’t it? Last month the story was that she and Jason had planned to get married before the end of the year, but they couldn’t stop fighting long enough to plan everything out. And now it looks like Jason is definitely leaving Britney, and all that’s left to do is tell her.

He’s apparently already told Britney’s family so that she’ll “have a support system when he breaks the bad news.” He’s also being enough of a sweetheart to wait until this season of X-Factor is over so that she doesn’t have to do live television while brokenhearted. Isn’t that thoughtful?

Another thing: he still wants to be her manager. And he’s already one of her conservators, remember, so this plan may not be good for Britney’s heart, but it makes perfect sense for Britney’s bank account. Which is, obviously, the most important thing.

I’m not so sure I believe this, but that’s basically just because I want nothing but good things for Britney. This dude breaking up with her while he still keeps a firm grasp on her money? Not so good for her.
